My Aunt Ruth passed away last week, and during her funeral mass, I happened to look straight up in the steeple of the church, the church where she attended daily mass for most of the past thirty years or so, St. Pious X in New Orleans.
And I knew what I needed to do. I needed to create something for the family. Something to help us remember the spiritual legacy that Aunt Ruth left behind. My new partner in crime, her oldest (of three) son’s girlfriend (who is also a longarm quilter– Hi, Jackie!) is going to work collaboratively with me on this. Until we figure out our plan, I grabbed some fabric and sliced it up.
And then I threw them in a bag, grabbed a Diet Coke, and turned on Bravo.
And used some of the fabric piece by piece. I set my timer for 15 minutes. When my time was up, I started on a new block. And here’s what I ended up with.
Like it? How do the colors look? I did saturate them a little with Picasa. In real life, they are a little less expressive. However, since the sun is on vacation elsewhere, I couldn’t get the color representation I hoped for. What should we do next? Keep going? Scrap some of the fabrics? Add more? You two cents are appreciated!
